What story lies behind those hard earned medals and what sweat goes in every day to become a sports champion is worth sharing with the fans. Biopics are very much trending in Bollywood and after the critically acclaimed and immensely loved biopics on Milkha Singh, Mary Kom, M.S.Dhoni, and Pan Singh Tomar now it is Shraddha's turn to paint the reel picture of a sports personality.
The big news is that Shraddha will be playing the role of badminton champion Saina Nehwal in the upcoming biopic.
Director Amol Gupte has been working for years to build a story around Saina's life and present it onscreen. The upcoming biopic will be produced by Bhushan Kumar.
The movie is expected to release in 2018 and will narrate the coming of age story of Saina.
"Whoa! That's news to me. I was aware of the film, yes, but I didn't know about the casting. It's great if Shraddha plays me because she is a very talented actress and very hardworking. I am sure she will do justice to the role. The best part is, she is a good friend as well. So it will be easier to teach her some badminton skills (laughs!). A lot of people did tell me that we do look similar and I think that's a huge compliment because Shraddha is very good looking," said Saina Nehwal in an interview to Times of India.
